JESSICA LEA MAYFIELD

Jessica Lea Mayfield is excited to announce an upcoming 10-date US tour featuring Homeschool (fresh solo project of Tom D'Agustino, formerly of Active Bird Community) as well as a show with long-time friends and collaborators, The Avett Brothers. Coinciding with the tour announcement, Mayfield is releasing the first visual off her upcoming record, for her latest single “Can You Feel It?” directed by Haley Wetherington and produced by Lindsey Gardner.

Jessica Lea Mayfield is no stranger to creating on her own terms. Since 2020, Mayfield has been sprinkling new singles out one by one in lieu of the industry-standard full length LP, and is now presenting her first visual - a psychedelic world of her own for 2021’s “Can You Feel It?”

HOMESCHOOL

Homeschool: Book I is the debut EP of Homeschool, the project of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Tom D’Agustino. This 4-track EP was recorded on the eve of the Covid-19 pandemic and during the disbandment of D’Agustino’s former project, Active Bird Community. “These songs, to me, are the perfect introduction to what Homeschool grapples with,” D’Agustino says. “They examine trauma and what it can look like to process it, what it means to be responsible for other people who are more vulnerable than you, and what happens when someone from a past relationship loses someone they love.”

The songs featured on Homeschool: Book I are not easily pinned down to one set of meanings, however, which was intentional and encouraged by D’Agustino’s collaboration with other artists on the original music. Most notably, “Smartest Man,” featuring writing partner, Samia, explores what it means to make a decision that affects others, interrogating that sense of personal responsibility and where it might come from. The last track on the EP is a reimagined version of the original “Smartest Man,” orchestrated and recorded by acclaimed artist, Bartees Strange, and also features renowned singer-songwriter Arlissa. D’Agustino notes, “Bartees has this striking ability to gaze into another’s work and pull out something hidden but crucial, something that may have been overlooked by the creators themselves, and give it light and life. He achieved this so effortlessly on this track while Arlissa’s voice danced along the new landscape with a delicate power. It is a very special work to me and I am beyond grateful for their participation and reimagination.”
